It's not often I get to be 'in the room where it happens" but today that's exactly where I was!
This amazing guy, Jimmy Choi, otherwise know as the Fox Ninja, broke a world record today. He did the most chest-to-ground, hand-release burpees in 1 minute. The prior record was 28 and he pulled off 31!! Jimmy lives with Parkinson's Disease so that makes this record even more spectacular! He's a constant inspiration to everyone around him, never giving up, never giving excuses and showing what is possible when you are focused and dedicated and keep your eye on your goal.
Jimmy also travels extensively to speak about PD and raise money for the Michael J. Fox Foundation. Progress is being made all the time and we get to witness it in Jimmy. Go follow him on IG or FB under Jimmy Choi - Fox Ninja to watch his amazing athleticism and perhaps donate a few dollars towards Parkinson's research!
Jimmy's support team is second to none with this friends and family. Watching his daughter watch him complete this goal, gets me every time, as a Mom. Our kids watch us and the example we set. And she's got two of the best ones guiding her through life!
So proud of you and so thankful to get to call you my friend!
